    Thick black sticky tar coming out of the ground

    Not quite sure what I've found, but it's a thick black sticky tar coming out of the ground in a National Forest. Not sure how to proceed IF it is actually oil. It's at the base of an ancient volcano and surrounded by peridotite and shale. Any ideas how to proceed? Thx in advance

    Well Jed, could be good news.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    If it’s in a national forest there’s nothing for you to do

    Black gold, Texas tea. It belongs to the gov., none for me.
    I'm guessing there's no pipeline in the area.

    Collect some and try to find out what it is. Keep quiet.

    Oil used to be discovered that way. Then they'd know where to drill. But usually not tar. Tar pits. It's said the good tar is all gone. The stuff today doesn't repair itself like the tar from pits did. I don't know but I'm glad I'm not a roofer. On a hot summer day pouring hot tar on a roof? That's what a bad idea sounds like.
    Take a bit. If it's petrol based it will desolve in many things but gasoline or kerosene might be easyist. Will it burn? Taste?

    Tar? I saw that coming out of the sidewalk on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, near the LaBrae Tar Pits. Sign of geologic activity. And it all belongs to the government 100%. And if a volcano is brewing there, oh oh!
